I have a drive which once was my internal laptop boot drive with Windows home and two other partitions, retired when I replaced that drive by a larger one.
Long ago when I connected it as a USB drive, it wanted to run Windows patches, which of course I didn't want nor need, since the purpose is just to hold it as is and maybe drag few files out.
So I wrote myself a sticky note, the real kind, to next time connect it holding SHIFT key so nothing would try to run.
Well, so I did just that today.
It's in devices as a USB Mass storage device, totally correct.
But it has no drive letters and basically invisible to windows explorer.
So my question is - how can I get to the drive contents on the system partition as well as the other data partitions without it triggering booting or other undesireable things?
